International roaming

Can anyone tell me, will I get international roaming charges if my phone remains on flight mode?

You shouldn’t because there’s no connection
I went overseas and turned my data off and didn’t get charged
Just had wifi on

Hi @Sarahssss,


For any international charges, your mobile service will need to connect to the local network and have International Roaming active. 


If your handset remains in flight mode, it won't connect to any mobile networks Smiley Happy
